Here is what I have done when needing to cut-and-paste a lot of images:
| #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
| (defun paste-clipboard-to-file (&optional filename temp-dir)
| "Take a screenshot using the crosshairs and saveit to FILENAME,
| if it is given or to a temp file in the TEMP-DIR
| directory. Then add an orgmode style link at point."
| (let* ((temporary-file-directory (or temp-dir "images"))
| (fname (or filename (make-temp-file "img" nil ".jpg"))))
| (call-process-shell-command (concat
| "/usr/sbin/screencapture -s " fname))
| (insert "\n[[file:" fname "]]")
| (global-set-key (kbd "C-c p") 'paste-clipboard-to-file)
After running that block, I move to my *.org buffer, make sure there is an
'images' directory in M-x pwd RET, make sure I have an image somewhere on my
desktop, then move my cursor to where I want a link to an image. C-c p launches
the screenshot utility on my Mac ("/usr/sbin/screencapture -s " --- other OS'es
will have something similar) and I make a selection. It displays in my org
buffer, but I can toggle that off with M-x org-toggle-inline-images.
It really helps in reviewing an article with lots of equations to just clip
them out as I read and add a few notes.
You might try
C-h i org RET C-s image C-s C-s ...
to look thru the manual and see what it says about images.
And/Or google 'worg image orgmode'
